TempoWeave Designer is an application that gives the designer a platform to create weaving designs that include the draft, colors and project calculation information. TempoWeave creates the design file according to the WIF standard; Weaving designs generated to this standard can be opened and used in most any weaving design software.
The goal of TempoWeave is to provide the weaver with useful tools to quickly generate weaving designs for projects and have the freedom to easily play with structure and color.
While TempoWeave is very helpful for any weaver designing projects, it's especially useful for users of TempoTreadle. With TempoTreadle, having a repeat of the threading and treadling with all the color changes is very useful for easier setup and weaving.
This documentation assumes the weaver has familiarity with the format of weaving drafts.
Update as of January 28th, 2023: TempoWeave can be purchased at LoftyFiber under the link TempoTreadle. It is currently in Beta for a nominal charge of $1. The Beta version has an expiration date. The first official release is coming soon!
